Maryland has one of the highest rates of “domestic human trafficking in the nation,” according to the National Human Trafficking Hotline, and the Eastern Shore is not immune.
Mid-Shore Behavioral Health is hosting this 6th Annual Sequential Intercept Mapping (SIM) meeting. Speakers at this meeting include Katharine Petzold, Cara Rose, Corporal Chris Heid of the Maryland State Police Child Recovery Unit; Patrick Wynn, Special Agent with the Federal Bureau of Investigation; and Julie Crain, Founder and CEO of Harriet’s House. For All Seasons will be a contributing partner. This event will be held at Temple B’nai Israel in Easton on Tuesday, January 28 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. A light breakfast and lunch will be served. Registration is limited, with CEUs provided to the first 40 individuals to sign up.
Katharine Petzold, states, “These presentations, designed to shine a light on the often hidden and often misunderstood crime of human trafficking, will educate professionals on the reality of trafficking in our community. Through understanding and awareness, we can identify and better serve those who are at risk or may be involved in a trafficking situation. Come join us as a first step to creating a community free of trafficking.”
